Process Folder tool
Note about blobbing.
The blob command will blob an image, generating object or particle outlines, rather than another image. A blob file ".sblob" is the result of this processing, rather than a tiffimage, the sblob files are written to the blob directory, and a dummy tif file is written to the write directory. This is because there can be several sblob files for the same image, with different parameters - and this is difficult to check at the top level of processing a folder. The dummy files keep track of what images have been processed, so that the process folder command can be continued if interrupeted part way through. Interrupt processing the folder by closing the window with the progress bar and time estimates (the loop monitor window).
